The links
http://archive.org/details/ancestryofcolone01holm
http://archive.org/details/ancestryofcolone02holm

are both pointing to volume 1 of this work in OpenLibrary (http://openlibrary.org/books/OL25336301M/Ancestry_of_Colonel_John_Harrington_Stevens_and_his_wife_Frances_Helen_Miller), making it imnpossible to sign out volume 2.

I have added a separate record for vol. 2 at http://openlibrary.org/books/OL25430478M/Ancestry_of_Colonel_John_Harrington_Stevens_and_his_wife_Frances_Helen_Miller-Vol_2.

This as per a request by Jeff Kaplan in a message at
http://archive.org/post/938986/multivolume-issue-ancestry-of-charles-stinson-pillsbury-and-john-sargent-pillsbury.

Jeff, apparently it worked, as I was able to sign out vol. 2. I am certainly willing to do this for other cases I may encounter, but can you confirm whether I have done this in the preferred way?

It would be nice to be able to see the work before producing the page, but I cannot see a way to do this. In this case I turned out to be lucky, as the details of the description which I guessed based on the records in the Internet Archive and WorldCat turned out to be correct. But in other cases, such an approach might not work very well. I suppose the details can be fixed after the fact, but it doesn't seem like the most elegant solution.
